Virtual collaboration room provides immersive transplant training

A collaboration between X2O Media and TransMedics Inc. has seen the successful installation of the X2O Collaboration Room — an immersive virtual training environment for global clinical users of the life-saving Organ Care System (OCS) technology.

TransMedics — a medical technology company transforming organ transplantation — selected X2O Media — a global provider of virtual collaboration technology for enterprises — to provide a purpose-built virtual collaboration room. X2O Media collaborated with integrator partner IMT Global to install the custom-built hybrid virtual training room, which enables TransMedics to provide continuous high-quality education and training to its worldwide audience of transplant surgeons and clinicians.

“We believe that the X2O technology provides [a more] immersive experience for our clinical users and collaborators than traditional web-conferencing platforms,” TransMedics CEO Dr Waleed Hassanein said. “More importantly, having the X2O Collaboration Room environment enables us to deliver our training without travel restrictions of the global pandemic, and in a more efficient manner for our team and our users.”

“TransMedics’ application of X2O Media’s collaboration technology is an ideal use case of how multiple cameras strategically placed in the training room improves engagement to achieve active learning,” X2O Media President Mansour Brek said. “Unlike typical videoconferencing, the X2O Collaboration Room allows the attendee the freedom to select their preferred view of the medical device, which naturally will captivate their interest and overall participation. We are inspired that X2O technology offers TransMedics the advanced collaboration tools to support their vital work of OCS training and sharing key transplantation research with the medical community.”

X2O Media’s next-generation technology is designed with technological features such as high-definition, bidirectional audio and visual communication, interactive break-out groups, integrated collaboration tools and an intuitive user interface that provides remote participants a training experience that is immersive and thorough.
